Liverpool are known to be interested in Nice’s midfielder Khephren Thuram and now, a reputable local newspaper has given an update.

Nice-Matin report he would cost a minimum of €40 million (£34.3m) for Liverpool to buy.

The report also stated the Reds “will wait until the end of the U21 Euros to finalise an offer close the Nice board’s expectations.”

This is due to Thuram’s participation in the tournament with France, where he will play alongside another reported target, Manu Kone.

The journalist writing, William Humberset, added: “Thuram is the closest to packing his bags.

“The English club wish to reinforce their midfield with the 22-year-old French international.”
